The Stories of Resilience, Courage, and Spiritual Transformation is a compilation of student essays written by Puerto Rican students who fled Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria and moved into the arms of St. Thomas University in Miami, Florida. The narratives captured in this book accurately chronicle the impact this natural disaster had on their lives. These are stories of survival shared by a courageous and resilient group of young adults.
Each student describes the devastation they experienced – days without food, water, gas and the means to communicate. Each one expressed the apprehension they felt about leaving their families and loved ones. For some, this would be the first time venturing out on their own.
Reading these essays will move you to experience a diversity of emotions. Each student will take you on a journey; one filled with uncertainty, fear, anxiety, courage, resilience, and hope for a better future.
